The truth about what it really takes to succeed online.

People talk more and more about how easy it is to use Clickfunnels or any other funnel building software for that matter.

This might be true.

Everyone can honestly learn to use the software in a matter of a few days or a couple of months.

Anyone can throw together a landing page and try and sell a product online.

There’s no secret sauce to it, no special technology skill that only a very few among us possess.

In fact, I’m telling you – as a clickfunnels software user myself – everyone of you can learn it.

Now, where’s the catch you might think?

to live a creative life, we must lose our fear of being wrong. (2)

Why are there so many people already using Clickfunnels, Leadpages, Kajabi and Infusionsoft and haven’t gotten to the point yet where they make a few thousands dollars each day every day through their respective funnels?

The simple answer.

Conversions.

The more complex answer.

A lack of traffic.

Both combined?

A lack of traffic and knowledge on how to craft a compelling offer;

Tell that offer’s story through ads and other marketing channels in order to drive traffic to your funnel,

AND having either the social influence,

OR the knowledge on how to exactly optimize that funnel of yours,

Your funnel will contribute exactly ZERO to your income generating online power machine.

 

That’s the truth even though it might be hard to swallow for some of you.

Now, what do you need in order to make not only a Clickfunnels‘ funnels but also any other sales funnel successful?

I’m going to spill the beans for you now.

The secret sauce of all internet businesses.

Are you ready?

You need an audience.

A tribe.

People who actually know who you are, like and – most importantly – TRUST you.

How do you gain someone’s trust online?

After all, they can not hear, see or feel you?

You’ll have to do it by sharing your opinions, what you stand for, your hard-earned knowledge and any other value you can think of.

And then, guess what?

You’ll have to do it over and over and over again.

The kind of people who build funnels inside Clickfunnels and are automatically successfully, generating hundreds if not thousands every single day from their funnel, are people who either had a ridiculously high amount of advertising/marketing budget to use for this OR,

That already put in the months and years of work in building up their tribe.

This audience – your tribe – can be found anywhere. Whatever platform feels more natural to you. Instagram, Twitter, through a Facebook group or an actual email list.

So, in conclusion, don’t focus just on the funnel.

Don’t think that if you get this super cool brand new – truly awesome at that – software Clickfunnels and throw together a funnel, you’re going to make millions.

Know, that everything good in life takes time. 

Creating, strategizing and building a super successful high-converting sales funnel of any kind in any niche or industry, takes time – depending on how low or high up you are in the digital marketing popularity scale.

For any business you need customers to make it an actual business.

Customers that are willing to buy whatever you have to offer.

A sales funnel at that, or a landing page, are no different.

  1. Cornelia,

    Killing it again! BOOM! This has inspired me to start with building my tribe. I going to use Facebook to start a group and then use my blog and youtube to produce content. I will then record interviews in the facebook group and do presentations about the content i’ve created for the blog and YouTube!

    What do you think?

    1. Well thank you so much Peter! Happy to hear you’ve liked this article. And I would say that you’ve got a good strategy going thus far. Just make sure to be consistent. Consistency is key. Pick a number of how many times a week you can produce content on each platform and on what days you are going to distribute said content and stick to it. Of course, if you feel like you want to speed up your organic Facebook marketing attempts, be sure to check out my online program #Connect ;).
